Settlers reportedly shoot two Palestinians, torch cars in latest West Bank attacks

Two Palestinians were shot and injured, and vehicles and a home were torched during violent settler attacks in the northern West Bank. The attacks were carried out by a group that descended from the Yitzhar settlement and clashed with Palestinian residents in Asira al-Qibliya. Israeli soldiers were later deployed to the area to disperse the assailants. The incidents highlight the increasing pressure on Israel to crack down on settler violence, with the US and UK imposing sanctions on extremist settlers. Human rights group Yesh Din reported that at least 10 Palestinians were killed and dozens of homes were torched in settler attacks in 2023.
